Sony recently announced the Sony RX10 IV, and in this article I wanted to share some of the initial reviews that are starting to pop up on the web. I also wrote a complete Breakdown article explaining all the New RX10 IV features in detail here >>
I will populate this article as new quality reviews come to my attention, so please check back periodically if your interested in the RX10 IV and those updates. Also, if you see a good review you think I should add to this article, please don’t be shy and let me know below in the comments below or hit me up on social media 😉
When compared to the RX10 III the RX10 IV has a New 1″ sensor capable of killer AF, can shoot 24fps, has a touch screen, Slog 3, improved optical stabilization, and about double the slow-motion record time….
So what is the RX10 IV missing?
Well, in my opinion the most critical features missing are still the fully articulating rear LCD touchscreen, and built in ND filter. Not necessarily the end of the world, but Sony has the hardware for the screen already, courtesy of the A99 II (My A99 II Review Here), so why not include that feature? Saving it for the RX10 V perhaps?
If Sony can fit the ND filter into the deck of cards sized RX100 series cameras, I tend to think it should fit into the RX10 series cameras as well. However, perhaps there is some engineering challenge that makes this impossible, I really am not 100% sure.

More reviews coming soon….
That is about it for this quick review linking article, and please let me know if you would like me to review the New Sony RX10 IV!
My life has gotten pretty busy again, so I apologize for not pumping articles out like I was the last two months or so. I do have two lens reviews coming out soon and more articles in the works behind the scenes. So, stay tuned!
I was thinking about reviewing next the New Sony FE 100-400mm GM lens so I can compare it to the killer A-Mount 70-400mm lens. I can also do the same with the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens as compared to the A-Mount 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens.
Now, I want to use the A7r II for the killer 42mp sensor to push the lens resolution to the max, but I also want to use the Sony A9 for the high speed sports photography I want to do with the 100-400mm GM Lens. This leaves me in a bit of a pickle.. I can try the lens on both cameras, but that will take a few months to pull off. I think I might go for the A7r II for those lens reviews, although I suppose I could use my now old A7r for the lens lab testing? Hmmmmm
Your thoughts on the future reviews would be greatly appreciated??
Have a wonderful weekend everybody, and I will catch up with you all later,
